Try here, one post I saw said 1234 default, but others said it did not work! Another post indicated the only way was to ring them. Posts did indicate it has nothing to do with the user, some pins are set by defalut and to the value of an old card last 4,  which of sourse only works in the old box! :-X

Thanks for the suggestion, but 4 zeros doesn't work either. I've had a good look around & can't see a passcode reset option.

Looks like I'll have to try contacting Sky. "Good luck with that" I can hear you cry.

For live BBC (or other UK channels) don't forget Rob's TV - https://robssatellitetv.com/ - no VPN needed.

Geordie, I did have a very explanatory site about how the BBC iplayer 'assesses' vpns, but I've lost it!
Search on vpn and iplayer, and you'll find it.
It's not a BBC guy sitting there, it's about analysing the traffic from particular IP addresses. If a particular (vpn) IP address (or twenty), exhibits behaviour which persuades iplayer that it's looking at a vpn (contemporary hits, in the main) it blocks any IP.
This is very recent, and (being conspiratorial about this stuff) I find it difficult to believe this isn't down to upcoming EU legislation about freedom of access to digital media, and the absurd notion that the UK has already left the EU (which it hasn't, yet).
I would be delighted to throw 150 (the UK licence fee) towards the BBC so that I can watch their programmes - but I do not have the option of doing this. The BBC would be delighted to receive my 150, but they are not allowed to offer this to me. It's absurd. Some programmes, like Newsnight, do make much of their stuff available on YouTube, which is helpful (to me).
Filmon (fairly hefty subscription) makes live stuff available - but not the watch again options.
I'm mega pissed off with this.

Thanks Geordie. Yes, I have tried a reboot, to no avail. I'll have a look round for a password reset option, but I'd half expect it to ask me to input the current one first...?

I'll report back.

I would have thought it easy for the BBC or any other company to stop/block any VPN connection. A little BBC guy sits there and signs up for each major VPN company and gets a list of the servers involved and they block any connection from them. As standard PureVPN give out none specified servers if you get in touch saying you can't get access to the BBC. I'm sure the BBC will of course catch up with these too, "cat & mouse" game with users stuck in the middle. Guess what is needed is your own VPN server running in the UK that you can connect to from here.

If your mention of using a vpn is so that you can watch the BBC, be aware that the iplayer is becoming cleverer by the day in detecting vpns being used by people outside the UK.

I used IPVanish for six weeks and iPlayer didn't seem to clock on but Sky did.
